Okay, theres this one sample of a crowd I can't quite describe, but it's pretty lo-fi, and is just kind of chattering and laughing. It's featured prominently in "Merrily We Roll Along" by Datach'i, and somewhere in "Maple Leafs" by Jens Lekman (I think it's that track), on the very end of "Return of The Gangster" by Outkast, and other places (I think I heard Belle and Sebastian used it too, but don't know).

Either way, what the hell is this sample that has been used so prominently, especially for something that's a just a field recording.

I listened to those tunes, and it's definitely the same sample. My guess is that, since it's been used by such different artists, it's not a field recording rather than a sample of some well-known tune with crowd noises, like "The 'In' Crowd" or "What's Going On" or Donny Hathaway's "The Ghetto". Damn if I know which one, though.

What's the origin of the "Step up...Step-- Step up..Step up" from "Step in the Arena"/"I Get Around"

Ha, I always figured it came from a (then) contemporary rap song of some sort. Thanks!

The Reverend, Wednesday, 18 March 2009 03:09 (eight years ago) Permalink

The crowd noise sample Mehlt mentions upthread is still bugging me. I assume it must be from some well-known record, since it's used by such different artists as Outkast and Jens Lekman. Any guesses?

Tuomas, Monday, 30 March 2009 10:27 (eight years ago) Permalink

Does anyone know what song this Finnish rap tune samples? Sounds like some old soul tune, but I don't recognize it...

love & elecktrik - sex video

im sure the opening plinky plonky melody is lifted from some other song, possibly an 80s disco or freestyle track. the song is here: http://winniecooper.net/2009/07/love-elektrik/ and the specific part i mean is at 4 seconds in. it's driving me crazy!

NI, Friday, 24 July 2009 13:00 (eight years ago) Permalink

ok ignore that, im pretty sure its from kraftwerk's 'computer love'

This one should be easy but I've spent years searching to no avail: the chorus of Public Enemy's "Fight the Power", it sounds like there's a female voice repeating "hug and kiss" or something along those lines. Who is it and where is it from?

Udon Nomi (Stevie D), Tuesday, 8 December 2009 06:10 (seven years ago) Permalink

Good question. Always wondered that myself. Maybe it's a sped-up sample making identification difficult.

Kevin John Bozelka, Tuesday, 8 December 2009 07:07 (seven years ago) Permalink

It's not one of these?

naus, Tuesday, 8 December 2009 08:36 (seven years ago) Permalink

Not hat I could tell. Those are the same samples listed on wiki. Stevie, just speed up every one of those and see which one may be it. :)

Kevin John Bozelka, Tuesday, 8 December 2009 08:46 (seven years ago) Permalink

I already went through every one of those.

Udon Nomi (Stevie D), Tuesday, 8 December 2009 12:39 (seven years ago) Permalink

Yeah but did you speed them up?

The vocals are from Crush On You by The Jets, which were sampled on Intro by Alan Braxe & Fred Falke.

Cool, thanks everyone!

Never heard of that The Jets track before - it's great! I guess I must have heard the sample in some DJ mix under the Alan Braxe guise but was then when I came across it in that 1991 Coldcut-Meets-The Orb mix was thrown.

Ctazy how just 5 seconds lifted totally makes something new.

Crazy how just 5 seconds lifted totally makes something new.

^ sounds naive esp. from someone who spent a looooong time sample checking DJ Shadow entroducing

Isn't sample actually lifted from this one:

Moka, Wednesday, 23 June 2010 05:57 (seven years ago) Permalink

I mean yes I get that's maybe a hyperbolic comment since this song is built on the Jets one... but even the 'rap' intro is lifted from that one.

Moka, Wednesday, 23 June 2010 06:00 (seven years ago) Permalink

That Jets sample was used at one point on 2ManyDJ's As Heard on Radio Soulwax Pt. 2.

Yeah, that's definitely a super-familiar sample, but I can't remember where it's from either.

cardigans?

meisenfek, Thursday, 16 September 2010 22:39 (six years ago) Permalink

Really?! I'm definitely thinking 70s Chi-Lites/Sylistics kinda vibe, and I don't think it's digging too deep in the crates. Like something I would have heard on Top 40 radio all the time back then. Even though Coolbone were never really popular, Guru did this remix and I think it's weird that there's no sample info online.

Can you ID the guitar sample in this tune, it starts at 0:22.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ImAJjK83uc

It sounds really familiar, I think it's from an intro of some 80s TV series, but I can't recall which one.

Tuomas, Tuesday, 26 April 2011 09:07 (six years ago) Permalink

Reminds me of a cross between "Silver Fang" and "Baywatch" but it's neither one of them... definitely think I've heard it before but not sure where... either sampled by someone else or as a sort of coda from some 80s song in my collection... I'll see if i can find it before anyone else does.

Moka, Tuesday, 26 April 2011 09:52 (six years ago) Permalink

Baywatch was the first thing I thought too, but I listened through a few versions of its intro and couldn't find that exact riff. Maybe it played during the end titles, though?

Tuomas, Tuesday, 26 April 2011 10:33 (six years ago) Permalink

parts of the guitar part are vv similar to parts from Cindy Lauper's Time After Time, imho

Ok I've finally identified the sample above, in case anyone wants to know It was also used by Shirley Bassey in the song Jezahel (a cover from the italian 'Jesahel') and it was sampled by Public Enemy.

Reverse ID this sample. I know a dance track has used the 4 bar vocal at 3:04 on Deee-Lite’s good beat, but it has been bugging me all day that I can’t remember.

This has been bugging me for a while... I know there's a tune by Queen Latifah (I think) that uses the same piano sample as heard on this track at 1:09... But what is that tune? And where is the sample originally from? I've heard the original tune a few times, and I think it's something incredibly obvious, but I just can't get it into my head.

FWIW I listened to the Golden Rules album and it's well worth checking out, especially if you like a bit of fretless bass.
